General Dynamics Corporation operates as an aerospace and defense company. The company offers a portfolio of products and services in business aviation; combat vehicles, weapons systems and munitions; shipbuilding; and communications and information technology (IT) systems and solutions. Business Groups The company operates through four business groups, including Aerospace, Combat Systems, Marine Systems, and Information Systems and Technology. AEROSPACE The Aerospace group designs, manufactures and outfits a family of Gulfstream business-jet aircraft, provides aircraft services (including maintenance and repair work, fixed-based operations and aircraft management services) and performs aircraft completions for aircraft produced by other original equipment manufacturers. The Gulfstream product line includes aircraft across a spectrum of performance options in the large- and mid-cabin business-jet market. The large-cabin models are manufactured at Gulfstream’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia, while the mid-cabin models are constructed by an international partner. All models are outfitted in the company’s U.S. facilities. The two newest aircraft to join the Gulfstream family include the ultra-large-cabin, ultra-high-speed G650 and the super-mid-size G280. Gulfstream provides aircraft for governments and militaries worldwide, with aircraft operated by approximately 40 nations. These government aircraft are used for head-of-state and executive transportation and various special-mission applications, including aerial reconnaissance, maritime surveillance and weather research. Product-enhancement and development efforts include initiatives in advanced avionics, composites, biofuels, flight-control systems, acoustics, cabin technologies and enhanced vision systems. Innovations include a cabin management system designed for the G650, and available on other Gulfstream aircraft. This system gives passengers control of the aircraft cabin systems through a handheld device synched to a particular seat on the aircraft. Each passenger can control own environment, including lighting, temperature and entertainment equipment. The company also offers various service and support applications, including the PlaneBook application, which provides pilots easy and immediate digital access to critical flight information and aircraft-specific documents. A multi-year facilities project at the company’s Savannah campus is scheduled to continue through 2017. This expansion includes constructing new facilities and renovating existing infrastructure. This effort follows a multi-year project that established a purpose-built G650 manufacturing facility.
